About the lab

The Multispecies Sustainability Laboratory is a place to learn about, investigate, reimagine, experiment and play with ways of being in, co-creating, and caring for more-than-human worlds, today and tomorrow. Our journeys have included encounters with greenspaces, cities and landscapes, food and agriculture, degrowth and the imaginary, as well as art, games and speculative literature such as solarpunk.

The lab is based in Matsuyama on the island of Shikoku (Japan) and part of the Department of Enviromental Design, Faculty of Collaborative Regional Innovation at Ehime University, but our ties reach from Aotearoa to the Netherlands and beyond.
